Yeah, mine smelt (was afraid to taste it) like sweet and sour chinese food.

Kinda gross and good at the same time.

Default accidental megamash

Through no fault of my own, I drank too much yesterday and wasn't competent complete the brew I was making, so it sat there, all night, at a constant 68C (154.4F) in my 50l Braumeister. The grain must have had about 16 hours soaking.

I finished the brew of this morning. Not surprisingly the wort was crystal clear and it developed a good foamy head when I dropped it into the fermenters. It also had a good 2 hour boil, on account of my general slowness. Efficiency was about normal. There were no 'off' smells.

I'll post again in a fewof weeks and advise if there are any unexpected flavours or other goings-on which may be of interest to members.


The brew in question is a simple wheat/vienna Saison late hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Sticklebract.

The wort will most likely not be as exceptionally fermentable as you suspect.
Starting at 155, you would have denatured all of the enzymes that act at lower temps.
This is the reason that when a step mash is performed, we start at lower temps and work up to higher temps.

Brew on friend, I just thought that I would add this info.
